REV. JAMES BANISTER is author of A View of the Arts and Sciences, from the earliest Time to the Age of Alexander the Great. 8vo. 1785; and a translation of all the Pythian, Nemean, and Isthmian Odes of Pindar, except the fourth and fifth Pythian Odes, and those which have been translated by Gilbert West. 8vo. 1792. But his place in these pages he owes to a translation, rather close and faithful than spirited and poetic, of the following tragedies of Euripides: 1. Iphigenia in Aulis. T. 8vo. 1780. 2. Orestes. T. 8vo. 1780. Troades. T. 8vo. 1780.
